Get the Word Out With a Smart Printing Campaign

Aug 17, 2007
If you have a product you need to move or a web site that needs promotion, there are great ways to achieve the goal without breaking the bank. One of the best solutions is a smart printing campaign. Generally cheap, easy and quite capable of producing results, few things are easier than a smart printing campaign for getting the word out. Plus, printing doesn't just have to mean fliers.

Printing is an easy way for you to market your business and the products that you sell. Many sellable goods can be printed such as T-shirts, baseball caps, book covers and cups. These items are easy to produce and a cost effective means of marketing your business or web site without the hassle of hiring an advertising firm.

Creating a design is the first step in the process of screen-printing. Creating a design can be as simple or as complicated as you wish to make it. There are many web sites available on the Internet that can you help you with this process and some companies provide design tools on their web site to help the buyer out. When creating the design you should always include the most important information about your product or business. Keep in mind that the more elaborate the design the higher the cost will be.

The next step is to determine what to put you design on. This is a very important part of the process because you will need to decide which type of items will do you the most good. T-shirts and clothing items are generally a good choice because these are items that are worn on a daily basis and the rate of exposure is high. Equipment like gym bags and sweatbands get a more limited exposure rate but are still good choices if your target audience is in a gym. Coffee mugs and glasses are another good choice but again these items have limited exposure rates but are good for exposure in areas like offices.

Choosing a company to print your products is the final step in the process. There are many different companies that will screen print and choosing one is not always an easy thing to do. Doing a search online and visiting the various web sites can help you to narrow down a company that is right for you and that will fit your needs. Be sure to investigate the company by doing checks at the better business bureau and any online watchdog groups.

After that it is just a matter of receiving your new products and determining how best to utilize them. A good idea is to calculate your costs and set aside a number of the products to sell so that you can cover these costs. The items that are left from that count could be given away as promotional goods thereby insuring that the advertising is out there or if the cost of producing these items is minimal then consider giving all of the products out as promotional items. When people wear your T-shirts or drink from your cups, they're inadvertently helping your advertising effort. That kind of exposure generally pays for itself.

In the world of marketing, advertisement costs can quickly get out of hand but screen printing can be a cheap yet effective means of promoting your business or product. Anything that helps you get the word out about your business is a good choice.
